Disciplines

The main difference between Slalom, GS and Super G is the course layout (how 'turn-y' the course is, based on how far apart the gates are). Slalom is the "tightest" and the gates get further apart and the speeds increase in a GS and even more so in a Super G.

Slalom

  • Average 40-50 second course
  • Offers more gates, more turns, (and for many) more fun than the other disciplines.
  • Speeds are slower but there is definitely more happening with more turns to be made between the start and the finish.
  • Two run, combined time format.
  • The course is reset between run 1 and run 2.
GS (Giant Slalom)

  • Average 50-60 second course
  • Offers moderate spacing between the gates.
  • The most appealing style of racing for those who have never done it before - and still really fun for those who have.
  • Two run, combined time format for results.
  • The course is reset between run 1 and run 2.
Super G

  • Average 50-60 second course
  • Offers moderate spacing between the gates.
  • The most appealing style of racing for those who have never done it before - and still really fun for those who have.
  • Two run, combined time format for results.
  • The course is reset between run 1 and run 2.
Dual / Team Relay FINALS

  • Average 60-70 second course
  • The gates are set further apart than GS and the racers are travelling at higher speeds than in a slalom or GS
  • Usually a one run event but we will do two runs if conditions permit
